I bought my Lenovo Y510p in December, and it has worked fine until now. The CPU temperature is around 60 degrees when idle and goes near 100 degrees under stress which causes throttling. I think either the CPU malfunctions or there's something wrong with the thermal paste. Can I take it to a Lenovo-certified maintenance outlet to have it repasted onsite or do I need to send it to somewhere?

Did u find a solution for this problem, am looking at My laptop Lenovo now, and it's 58-65 C
I changed the Thermal Paste, and still having the same problem it didn't drop down.
I have another Laptop Dell and it has Core 2 Due T9300 and it's the 1 am using for this post and it's temp is 40-42 C
Note: this is Idle temp when it's in SLI Mode, I didn't check it out with out the 2nd Card

1) What is your ambient temperature?
2) Are you using Cooling pad?
3) Is your laptop resting on a level surface?
4) Have you put some gap between the laptop bottom and the surface under it?
Its not right to comapre a i7 beast machine to a Core2Duo laptop. A gaming laptop normally runs hot, however idle temps should be between 40-50 celsius.

1) The room Temp is around 22 C
2) am not using a cooling pad, but am using a pad on my lap that keeps the laptop from buring me...
3) Yes it has a leveled surface
4) No am not adding extra things underneeth the laptop 2 level it up.

1) Ambient temp is fine.
2) Since Cooling vent is beneath the laptop I think you are covering that by using it on your lap.
3) You should try using it on a desk, sorry to say but gaming laptops are not meant for lap use. Maybe buy a small table like thing and put it on your bed and keep laptop on that.
4) Also, keeping the laptop a little bit raised from the surface helps. I use a cooling pad so my laptop is always raised.
(and still it heats up a little during gaming)
As I said, the vents are under the laptop and if you are covering that, the temp will rise up quickly.
If those points still dont solve the problem, it might be a defect in laptop manufacture. You should contact lenovo after that.
